oh..  I fell out of a moving car when I was 6..!

I just remembered this one..  my parents were newly divorced and still screaming at each other.  It was my fathers turn to have us for the weekend.  This was about 1971.. the days before seat belts.  He picked us up and I was sitting in the front seat.  As we went round a sharp corner, rather too fast, the door came open and out I went..!

The whole left side of my body was cut up and bruised..  my face, shoulder, arm etc... right down my leg.. 

My mother went absolutely ballistic at him..

Mr K worked with a submariner who was checking the periscope from the bottom, but no-one realised he was there...someone decided to lower it.

I'll leave you to imagine what happened next.

getting the nail out later was interesting in a sado masochistic way.

I broke my brothers ankle when I was 12 - I was driving across a field and he decided to jump on the bonnet but missed and got his foot caught under the wheel.

When I was a kid I was in the bath with my sister (me down the tap end of course) we had one of those shower attachments things on the taps and she pulled it off and the hot water went onto my leg and scalded it - yuck, big patch with layers of skin gone....rushed to A&E and bandaged up and jabbed etc. Worst was that back then (in the olden days) you didn't have dressings that didn't stick to burns, so each time I went back to the hospital to have it re-dressed the nurse had to rip the dressing off - it hurt more than the original injury

Seemed like a good idea at the time, then again so do the vast majority of stupid things.

I was wearing shorts and flip flops once when I opened an incinerator door (I thought it was off) the jet of flame that came out was better than a wax. I was the envy of the WRACs on camp, sexiest legs 1989 winner!

So many times in my former life, like the time i had my leg pulled about left handed grenades. I got confused and threw the pin away, imagine the panic when after counting to 5 I realised I was still holding the grenade!

In GW1 we had some mine ploughs fitted to the tanks and each one had a pneumatic crossbow attached to the rear. This fired huge steel bolts with luminous tips on them into the ground to mark the clear path through the minefield. One day in the workshop I was bored and drew a target on the wall and decided to fire the crossbow for a laugh. It went through the wall, across the tank park, through the cookhouse kitchen and thudded into the ammo compound wall next to a very stunned RSM. I scored a bullseye though.
